Pasquale Sciarappa shares his love of food and cooking with the world
Everyone knows when it comes to Italian food and eating well…most of the time it is about keeping it simple and fresh. Sure there are plenty of delicious new age twists on Italian cooking and recipes…but keeping it old school is usually the preferred method…at least among Italians. It’s not JUST about the food…it’s about history, heritage and tradition – or as Pasquale Sciarappa would say, genuine Italian recipes perfected over the years.
Sciarappa, 72 years old and currently from Long Branch, New Jersey, is originally from Orsara di Puglia in southern Italy. He, along with his son Jeremy, who films the videos and maintains the technological upkeep, operate a YouTube channel, youtube.com/orsararecipes, Facebook page, Twitter page and website – orsararecipes.com.
The YouTube channel has over 300,000 views, with hundreds of regular subscribers and videos are posted weekly.
With Italian cooking it just takes a love of food, cooking and sharing what you know to keep the traditions going – and Pasquale enjoys just that.
